Now temporarily certified for occupancy is Fidalgo Flats, a 25-unit apartment building just west of Starbucks near Commercial Avenue. Fidalgo Flats is the first development of its kind in Anacortes under the new land-use code. The five-story structure features an accessible rooftop garden with views of Fidalgo Bay, large balconies and available surface parking for residents. Final occupancy details are anticipated in the next 30 days.
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
